United States Supreme Court

HILL v. DAVIS(1964)

No. 1079

Argued: Decided: June 22, 1964

Judgment affirmed and case remanded for further proceedings consistent with views stated in Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 .

Reported below: 225 F. Supp. 689.

Ward Reynoldson for appellants.

Robert F. Wilson for appellees.


The judgment below is affirmed. Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 . The case is remanded for further proceedings, with respect to relief, consistent with the views stated in our opinions in Reynolds v. Sims and in the other cases relating to state legislative apportionment decided along with Reynolds, should that become necessary. Since this appeal presents no question as to the correctness of the District Court's later decision upholding the validity of the temporary reapportionment plan enacted by the Iowa General Assembly in February 1964, we do not consider or pass upon this matter.

MR. JUSTICE CLARK would affirm on the grounds stated in his opinion in Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533, 587 .

MR. JUSTICE STEWART would affirm the judgment insofar as it holds that Iowa's system of legislative apportionment violates the Equal Protection Clause.

MR. JUSTICE HARLAN dissents for the reasons stated in his dissenting opinion in Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533, 589 . [378 U.S. 565, 566]
